Once known as Halikarnassus, Bodrum is an ancient city that seems to be making it quite well in the modern world. You can still find traces of the Old City around town but with such a beautiful coast, it's not surprising that this city is the centre of Turkish tourism. Holidays in Bodrum are not just about enjoying the endless sunny days, great beaches and nightly parties, it's a history lesson as well!
Bodrum Castle:Most visitors head first to Bodrum Castle, it's hard to miss! It is one of the best preserved sites from Medieval times in the world and is right in the marina area. Take a guided tour or just wander around on your own.
Windmills: You will notice right away that Bodrum is also famous for its peculiar white windmills. They are made with stone and lined with wood and were in use as fas back as the 18th century to grind flour and other grains.
Beaches: The city beach stretches all the way from the castle Halikarnas; it's great for swimming. Lounge out on one of the free sunbeds or right on the small pebble beach. For real sand, head to Gumbet or Bitez with a Bodrum car hire, they both make great day trips. The water here is quite shallow and not idea for swimming.
